My 2021 Get Your Rear in Gear - Grand Rapids Personal Pag

Most of you know that our 38 year old daughter, Michelle Messer, died in December of 2019 after dealing with Colon Cancer for 16 months. Last year, through your many donations, Team Moving for Michelle was able to raise $3680 in the Grand Rapids Get Your Rear virtual event. The money raised at this annual event is used to support Colon Cancer Coalition bring awareness to Colon Cancer.

This year there is both an in person event and the opportunity to walk/run a 5k on your own. I will not be participating in the in person event because of an annual camping outing with friends. You have the option to do either or you can just donate to our team without actually having to register for the race.

I was going to skip fundraising this year, but seeing Mallorie’s and Zachary’s first day of school pictures, and hearing their excitement about the new school year that night, tore at my heart! Their mama should be sharing in these moments! So, I do this to honor Michelle and help raise funds to bring awareness to this horrific cancer!

I’m not sure we can make it to $3680 again this year, but lets give it our best shot!

You can either register to participate or just hit the donate button and search under teams for Moving for Michelle.
